To Christopher Columbus.
Rumour is that's where he shagged his firstFunny story, just have to share, when i worked in the US for a few years i always seemed to miss the Canadian Thanksgiving, which is the same day as Columbus day. People would often ask me why Canada celebrated it in October vs the US thanksgiving in November.
Well thats simple i said, when Columbus floated on over to this side of the pond, he stopped in Newfoundland first, where he resupplied with fresh food and water before making the trip to Plymouth rock where he founded the US.
It was truly amazing how many people actually believed that version, and they would often walk away after noting "well i learned something new today"
AS far as I know there is not one piece of land on the planet that wasn't owned or inhabited by "someone else" prior to being either physically taken over or having "others" move in and push the "natives" out.
Good lord man, this is no time for your revisionist history.Vikings landed on the North American continent around 1000 AD,,,, ol’ Chris Columbus was a late comer,,,,
so why don’t we have a Viking Day?????
